Attend our bad ass camp.

Camps are cool. Actually, well-run and high-level camps are cool. So attend a high-level training camp designed for higher level athletes. You’ll not only learn something new, but you get to train and compete alongside some other bad ass dudes. We hold a camp Los Angeles in January for two reasons. One, some of the best football is in the LA area. And two, because it’s frickin’ freezing in Chicago in January. We also hold camp in Chicago in June when it’s warm. And because Chicago has some of the best football players in the country.

Our 2020 dates have been announced below. We also have our Futures Camp in Chicago in January and June for our youth athletes.

Rise & Fire Camp Information

Train and compete with some of the top high school athletes

The HIGH SCHOOL TRAINING will include ELITE LEVEL athletes at the varsity-level or underclassmen athletes with potential for high level varsity potential, primarily in the classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023. We will be accepting a small handful of athletes in the 2024 class and a VERY exclusive small group of QB's in the 2024 class.

This is NOT a typical SHOWCASE camp. This is a high level instructional training program with a competitive component built in to challenge our athletes.

An exclusive event... make sure you have dude level ability

While we want to provide every athlete with an opportunity to train and compete, we also want to be clear that the Rise & Fire event is not for every athlete. This is a high level, highly competitive training environment for varsity level athletes. QB’s especially need to be varsity level starting QB’s.

#BATTLETESTED... Dress for the job you want, not the job you have

All Rise & Fire Quarterbacks will receive exclusive Next Level training gear from Battle Football. Expect to bring cleats, socks and your base layer gear. The rest will be taken care of. All athletes will receive a pair of performance shorts and a Battle dri-fit performance shirt with a jersey number to identify them to both the media and college coaches in attendance. 

*QB's are required to bring their own football.

Take Advantage Of Our Discounted Rooms At Courtyard Marriott

We expect a wide range of out of town athletes and their families to attend our Rise & Fire events. So we've made arrangements with the Courtyard Marriott brand of hotels in LA and Chicago to offer discounted room rates for those needing overnight accommodations. The hotel locations for each city will be 5 minutes from the training location and also conveniently located near nightlife and plenty of tourist areas to provide a vacation-type experience for out-of-town athletes and their families.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What ages can attend Rise & Fire Camps?

    Typically we only accept High School level athletes. However, in some rare cases, we will take athletes going into the 8th grade for the following school year. These athletes need pre-approval from the Next Level coaching staff to be allowed to register.

  • What can/can't I bring to the event?

    Football cleats are encouraged. You do not need a helmet or any pads. All QB's MUST bring their own football. Please bring the football you use during your games.

  • Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

    Next Level Athletix Founder/QB Engineer Greg Holcomb can be contacted by phone at 773-615-5060. Or by email at

  • Is my registration / ticket refundable?

    Ticket sales are FINAL. Your registration ABSOLUTELY CANNOT be refunded once you register. Please do not register unless you know you are absolutely going to attend. We are capping this event to make sure we maintain a high coach-to-athlete ratio. So purchasing a slot and closing out registration means another athlete was unable to register. Therefore, we will not provide a refund. However, any athlete can transfer the cost of the Rise & Fire Camp to another Next Level camp or training session(s).
